This dynamic is soon to change as the 2 older kids will be moving out in a few months to go start their own lives, so I'm not sure how that would have worked at that point.
Just saying, as a parent of 1 teenager and 1 tween, having your spouse not at home to help with all the little things is draining. We kinda tag team, where I do all the sports stuff and he does all the other stuff (unless work gets in the way). Certain times of the year I feel like we hardly see each other.
